biker

-Ruck

Well, here comes another change again. Sellin' my ruckus to my good buddy Justin, I'm glad it's going to a friend so I can still ride it haha. Last weekend I borrow'd my friends '10 GSX-R 750 and boy did that get my heart pumping and now i'm searching high and low for good used bike. I'm looking for something between a 600 and 750cc bike.

-Bimmer

On another note I had to buy some new tires for the Bimmer today, god damn Nitto Invo's are already cooked. This time I went with some all seasons due to longer treadwear and since this is just my daily. I got some Falken Azenis PT-722 in 245/35ZR19, I went a smaller width so I can run less camber.

-FD

All I did so far was clean it, put some new Kumho XS tires on the rear, and install my non-color matched hood. Once I do get my bike I think I will uninsure the FD and just park it till the house is done (September '11)

I guess thats it for now. 

PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST!

The Daily

Took her out for a couple of quick snaps, first time actually trying to use my Canon T3i that I bought. I was impatient and didn't really take my time, which reflects on the pics.

new family member

So I brought in a new baby to my stable. 2009 Matte Grey Metallic Honda Ruckus, with 1km on the ODO so its literally brand new. This little guy is going to get the same treatment as the rest of my cars, I can't leave anything "stock". I got big plans, and already have a set route that I want to take. My buddy Rywatts got one too but in "Fight" Red, so we are going to build ours together.


FRESH!
Tight Fit!



I ordered some mods already for both of the "ruckii". It's pretty bad when I order parts when I didn't even own it yet, ahha! Me and Rywatts found these mods:

Turtlehead LED
The ORIGINAL TURTLEHEAD LED taillights feature the cleanest mount out, and one of the cheapest as well. Integrated signals. This is a very bright unit from the rear, yet very well hidden from all other angles. It includes the sealed LED assembly mounted to a CNC laser cut stainless bracket which is powdercoated black to blend with the seat base. It includes four aluminum rivets for super secure mounting. The end customer can also use screws if need be.



The DINGLEBERRY Plate mount is availible in satin black powder coat. It's a CNC aluminum body, with a powder black stainless plate bracket & stainless bolts. It covers all grind marks left from removal of the stock tail and really cleans things up. Beats the crap out of rattle can paint work & decal bandaids.


Thats it for now, after I think remove fenders and get a lower seat!

ricer?

Went ahead and installed a CP-E Charge pipe with meth bungs and a Tial Q BOV. This was for a purpose, my boost was tapering off around 15-16 psi and the stock DV (Diverter Valves) were leaking. With the Tial it holds the boost so now I can make 18psi steady and more in the future. The meth bungs are good for the future if I do decide to boost more with the Procede V5. One thing that is kind of great is since the car is a automatic the BOV does not release it's pressure at all while at full throttle, so it's kinda rare for you to actually hear the BOV go, which is a definite plus in my books.


Sooo dirty :(

fender liner woes

Looks like the H&R sport springs are too soft w/ the stock struts. I just placed an order on the KW V2 Coilovers got a unbeatable deal (our dollar being stronger helps too :D ) from Eric @ PYSpeed. With this I'll be able to go just as low but in turn will be able to stiffen up the dampers so the car won't bounce around too much. Even though I am modding the car I would like to keep it sensible, and not have shit rubbing or grinding. With the FD I could care less since it's kinda half of a track car and half of a street car.

I really wanted to build a new desktop computer but I guess I'll put that on hold for now :(.

tech'd

I was kinda bored today and thought I'd put on my M-tech rear spoiler. Took about 10 mins to do it, most of the time was just getting it aligned perfectly. Got the spoiler from JB Speed they sell some pretty decent replica parts.

the other sibling

Since I'm garageless which to me is almost the same as homeless, I had to reach out and get some stuff done by a local shop Four Function. Calle and Dave are really good peoples, I usually have stuff done myself but If I ever need anything they are there to help and get the job done. I figured it was time to get the 335i out of winter mode, so I dropped it off at Four Function, they got my H&R Sport springs in and also gave my fenders a slight roll. The BBS CH's I got, fit the car perfectly, all I need is probably a couple degrees of neg camber front and rear and it will be perfect.

Next on the list is to fix the slight front end damage my bro caused, mount the MTech rear spoiler, mount OEM front splitters and black out the chrome.

Will have pics of the car when its clean and tidy.

Where the fuck?

I'm a pretty patient guy, but I've been waiting on my BBS's to show up since Jan 21st. Canada border services denied entry of my rims/tires because the tires are manufactured in Japan....not like I'm trying bring in cocaine or guns. So my only choices were to get them slashed, or send 'em back to the states and pay for shipping back ($400 extra). I sent them back to the states due to the fact the tires were close to brand new and I have paid for them. Now I've been waiting a week to get the tires cleared to get sent back to the states. The shipper is of no help and takes days to respond to e-mails and phone calls. I've never ever had this many problems with just trying to get some rims. I hope I get them next week or I'm gonna flip!!!

Sleeping Beauty

Pretty much miss the FD. She's sleepin'. On a side note, I got a sweet deal on some aggressive BBS CH's for the bimmer! This is a pic of them on the sellers car. I'm super pumped can't wait for spring to come.
